Art Appreciation: South African Art: This art appreciation course focuses on eighteen South African artists from the 19th-21stcenturies. It begins by asking, “How do we look at art?” then goes on to explore the language and elements of art such as line, shape, mass, light, shade, space, texture, and color, as well as aspects of composition such as rhythm, focal points, and balance. These lessons can be completed in any order. Students may wish to study the entire eighteen lessons or pick and choose artists and styles that interest them most. Individual lesson downloads as well as a course download are available. The course is designed for ages 6-12 but may also be enjoyed by older students who are looking for an introduction to art appreciation.
